Fair Fight

If, as David Brooks postulates, Gov. Walker is being held hostage by the unions and his refusal to negotiate is based on his belief that the unions are all-powerful, Mr. Walker has some awfully powerful allies on his side as well, including the Koch brothers and the denizens of the John Birch Society.

So if Mr. Brooks is truly suggesting that in these tough times, everybody should hurt in order to make everything better, the least they can do is have a fair fight to begin with. That’s not exactly what we have going on here.
